I've made my dream a reality! I am a 26-year-old woman who has exceeded my and my family's highest expectations by becoming a young black entrepreneur. My dream had always been to own my own clothing and accessories shop when I was a young girl. I always dreamed about what it would be like when I lived in Mississippi, and as I grew older and moved to New York City and then Connecticut, I finally stepped out on faith and opened Girlie Girl Shop, a handbag and accessories shop for women of all ages. It was with much faith, determination and support from the love of my life that this became a reality. Now, I would like to share with Oprah and the rest of the world my grand opening day of excitement! October 15, 2009, was one of the happiest days of my life!
